CentOS is an abbreviation for Community Enterprise OS. This is one of the top Linux releases for servers and it is regarded as being one of the most reliable and safe Operating Systems available. CentOS is open-source software, so you will be able to customize it in whatever way you see fit, adding and removing packages or modifying the code of all of them. It is also free to distribute and use, so you won't have to pay any license fees, meaning that the total price that you'll need to pay for a server running CentOS will be cheaper as compared to the price for a server running another OS. What makes CentOS stand out among other Linux distributions is its huge developer society, which will help you get the reply to any question or problem you may have. Furthermore, each version that is released officially is supported for ten years, which is longer than with any alternative operating system. What this means is routine protection and stability updates which will provide a great software environment for all of your web applications in the long run.
CentOS in VPS Servers
CentOS is among the Operating System options offered by our VPS servers
. You'll get a fast, well-protected and reliable machine equipped with a 32- or 64-bit OS, according to the choice that you've made during the signup process. You can also select from the Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin hosting Control Panels - something, which is not possible with other Linux releases. These options will give you the opportunity to choose what you would like to do with the VPS - to host your Internet sites and to take care of the entire server as one very powerful account, or to create multiple accounts and provide access to others if, for example, you intend to start a hosting reseller business. In case you are more experienced and you want a server with CentOS, but without the additional software that's usually set up on it, you can acquire a VPS without Control Panel. This will enable you to fully customize the software environment for your websites.
CentOS in Dedicated Servers
If you need a dedicated server
with CentOS, you can take advantage of the plans which we supply, since this OS is one of the options which you are able to pick during the order process. Since the software that you want to use may have specific system requirements, we have 32-bit and 64-bit versions of CentOS. CentOS supports a number of hosting Control Panels, so if you obtain a dedicated server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to manage the server as if you're controlling a single very large account, and with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you're able to have distinct accounts for the domains that you host and can even start a reseller business, since the two Control Panels feature this a functionality. When you add the Managed Services upgrade, we'll also perform OS updates on a weekly basis and will ensure that your server is safe and it has the most up-to-date software all the time, in order to ensure the optimum performance for your web sites.
